Yarnalong -the one with the new Kindle

For my birthday my parents gave me a Kindle Voyage, and Leon gave me the beautiful brown leather origami case I’ve been obsessing about since Leon got his Voyage a year ago.  I was hesitating to upgrade my Paperwhite, because I liked it, and I bought a Pad & Quill case for it a year ago, which I have loved, although it is quite bulky. I generally avoid upgrading technology just because there is something  newer or prettier out there, but this is just glorious. The screen feels beautiful, but I don’t have to touch it because: haptic buttons! No raised bezel, and the front light auto adjusts. And as for the case, I’m almost lost for words. It actually smells like leather, and it feels lovely. It’s small and light, but so elegant. Needless to say, I’m loving the whole package.
 
I decided that the first book I read on the new Kindle should be something easy, something that I would help ease me in  to the new interface, so I’m reading Bowie, the last book in  Adrienne Bell's Sinner Saints series. It is as I expected it to be, and it’s book five of the series, so no real surprises here. Light, lovely, somewhat disposable.
 
I’m knitting Linnie, a baby jumper I’ve had in my queue for ever. Because I got the main colour from my big box of left over sock yarn, it is quite a serious little grey garment..
 
And that’s another week of what I am knitting and reading (and what I’m reading it on). Click over to Ginny’s blog to see what she, and the rest of the Yarnalong are doing this week.
